Winfrey, who was clearly an affirmative action beneficiary of the corporate media’s desire to put “black faces in high places,” has been so successful not because she is a “http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=4367 black woman” but because many whites are desperate to find and support non-threatening, “nice” nonwhites who seem to reinforce the media stereotype of multiculturalism as actually workable. Supporting such “Uncle Toms” also allows these whites to relieve a measure of misplaced “white guilt.”

This sad pathology lies at the http://www.wvwnews.net/story.php?id=4293 which, like Iowa, has few blacks and therefore allows liberal whites to continue to believe the myth of racial harmony.Oprah Winfrey owes all she has to white middle class women.
